Guide to Monterey
Things to Do in MontereyView Map
Downtown Monterey is a walkable neighborhood of historic adobe buildings, restaurants, shopping and entertainment options. Parking lots and hotels provide plenty of places to leave the car and walk streets and venture into the nearby Monterey Wharf area.
The main Portola Plaza Hotel & Spa backs to the Wharf where the historic Custom House, Monterey Museum and the Adobes of Monterey meet at a central courtyard.
The Monterey Conference Center and several large hotels are immediately in the vicinity, as well as the Monterey Institute of International Studies and the City Hall, Main Public Library, MOMA and the historic parks and homes settled in the 1700-1800's era of Monterey.

Our Low Price Hotel Guarantee
We are confident that our hotel prices are guaranteed to be the lowest rate you can find. If you find a lower rate for your hotel on another site, we’ll refund the difference to you. Book with us and enjoy total peace of mind!
If you find a lower rate at any time up until hotel's cancellation window, we'll match the price. The lower price you find needs to be for the same dates, length of stay and room type.
Found a better price?
- The lower price you found must be available on another website directed to consumers in the same locale, and must be for the same hotel, dates and room type.
- If you used a coupon/discount voucher when you made your original booking, you can still claim under the guarantee. We will use the total discounted price you paid and compare this to the lower price you found in order to calculate your refund.
- If you have made a booking which cannot be cancelled — whether it is non-refundable or if you are already within the cancellation window for the hotel — then you can't claim under the guarantee. Bookings that were part of a specific promotion (e.g. 3 nights for the price of 2) are also excluded from claiming under the guarantee.
- Once we have confirmed that you are due a refund under the guarantee we will issue the refund to the card you paid with at the time of booking. We will process your refund immediately but it may take your bank up to 30 days to process it and for it to show on your statement.
